Bernhard Rothmann and the Reformation in Münster, 1530-35, De Bakker, Willem; Driedger, Michael; Stayer, James
More than three decades ago Willem de Bakker completed his dissertation on Bernhard Rothmann and the Reformation in Munster. Now with assistance from James Stayer and Michael Driedger, it has been transformed, in de Bakker's words, into "a scholarly, tip-to-date account in English of one of the great turning points in Anabaptist and Reformation history" (ix).
The rise and fall of the Anabaptist kingdom in Munster remains one of the most captivating episodes of Reformation history. This book examines the developments leading up to the dramatic events. --Mennonite Quarterly Review
